Youngsters Audition For Coventry - 'Our Town Story'

On Saturday 25 September and Saturday 2 October between 9am and 2pm local young actors, narrators, musicians and dancers will be auditioning for a new Coventry Youth Performance Company (CYPC) organised by the City Council’s Education Department at the Belgrade Theatre. The Company will eventually perform ‘Our Town Story’ at the Dome, London on 3 November 2000.

The youngsters, all aged between 10 and 18 will each perform a short piece (up to three minutes). An audition panel will select the young people who will be notified by post if they have been successful in gaining a place with CYPC.

Our Town Story will be a new piece created specifically for the millennium about Coventry and over 100 youngsters are expected to audition.

All of the performers must be available during October 2000 when the premier of Our Town Story will be performed at the Belgrade and toured around Coventry before the performance at the Dome in November 2000.

The candidates for the auditions can choose one art form or a combination and can wear a costume if they choose to.

Councillor Joe Clifford, Coventry City CouncilCouncillor Joe Clifford, Chair of the Educational Excellence Policy Team, said:

"Our Town Story will be a great opportunity to show the talent among young people in this City and will add to the many projects highlighting the millennium. It’s tremendous to see so many youngsters are keen to get involved and I wish all of those who audition every success."

Our Town Story is supported by McDonalds and the Millennium Commission as part of the UK wide Millennium Festival and is linked to Coventry’s education and community millennium project.
